MIKE 3 Wave FM Online Course

Designed for busy professionals, this new modular online course will provide in-depth training on our advanced 3D phase-resolving wave model that can be applied to ports & terminals, coastal areas, as well as the offshore and maritime industry. 

Instructor led training. No travel required.

This modular, instructor-led, online course will provide advanced users and professionals involved in wave modelling with the skills to benefit from MIKE 3 Wave FM – a new wave modelling application that outperforms other existing deterministic wave models on the market.

The online instructor-led format gives you access to DHI’s expert instructors without the cost of travel and time away from the office. The course will combine theory and practice including hands-on exercises, lectures, break-out sessions, videos, quizzes, and home assignments. You will have ample time to collaborate with fellow participants, discuss tips & tricks, best practices, and pertinent examples.  

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training. Click here to learn more.

3D interface

Advanced 3D phase-resolving wave model that can be applied to ports & terminals, coastal areas as well as the offshore and maritime industry.

Flexible mesh

Flexible mesh-based tool for simulating fully non-linear and fully dispersive 3D waves with no depth restrictions in the model domain.

Coupling capabilities

Easy interfacing with existing MIKE 21 BW setups can be converted to MIKE 3 Wave FM model setups and there will be no more need for external tools calculation porosity (like in MIKE 21 BW).
